    Ingen's Note:

    This is a recipe from a book I am reading on Japanese Cuisine. I'm interested in the nutritional contents so I decided to post it. The recipe calls for granulated sugar but I have replaced that with sucanat - a natural sweetener. The recipe also calls for usu-age tofu which is deep fat fried tofu however, I am substituting baked tofu to avoid the extra oil. If you do use the usu-age tofu, be sure to blanch each slice twice and squeeze out the extra moisture when finished. Usu-age tofu is available in most Asian markets and is often called Abura-age tofu.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      If using baked tofu skip to slicing instructions. If using usu-age tofu - bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Add tofu and gently simmer over medium heat, turning occasionally, for 1 minute; drain to remove excess oil. Cut tofu diagonally in half and slice each half into thin strips.
    2. 2
      Combine the vinegar, sucanat, sake, soy sauce, and salt in a small bowl. Stir until the sugar has dissolved.
    3. 3
      Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add carrots and tofu strips and sauté until the carrots are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and add the soy mixture. Cook carrots and tofu for 2 more minutes, or until tender. Turn off heat, stir in the sesame seeds, and drizzle with toasted sesame oil.
    4. 4
      Transfer to small serving dish.

      This must be a recipe from Naomi Moriyama's book! I'm reading it right now and I love it. I like the substitutions you made a lot and they make the recipe healthier! Thanks for sharing it!
